I am an NRI and i got married recently and my wife is from Uttar Pradesh and i am native of Tamilnadu. When i went to register at the subregistrar office, virugambakkam i was denied marriage certiificate by the officials stating that the 3rd witness must be from the bride side, and this was a court order. I would like to know where is such a rule listed or i like to see that court order.
Since i had a flight on sunday and we went on friday they told us to come on monday despite the requests. Basically we had 3 witnesses all the documents including wedding photos, receipt etc which they requested we produced. However, there is no such requirements. I would like to learn about the authority of subregistrar to enforce a requirement on the fly.
This has resulted in setback for me as my wife would have to wait until next year when i arrive to get any visa process done as there is no MC.
Thank you for any help and suggestions.
